I’m sorry…I really, really didn’t want to speak on the Real Housewives of Atlanta at all. Sure, like a lot of folks out there I watched the show as a guilty little pleasure. You have to admit, it is entertaining television.
I watched the reunion show last night and I must say…they were in rare form. Rare! Oh my goodness. I really thought someone’s weave or wig was going to fly across the screen. Here are my thoughts:
- Ne Ne saying that the rumors of her bring an ex-stripper are false because she currently strips, but only strips for her husband was one of the best lines of the night.
- Lisa should have let Ne Ne loose. I would have been ok with her getting one good slap in on Kim. lol
- Kim, why would you elude to the fact that you are wearing a wig because you have cancer and then take it back in the next few sentences. You sound crazy? I was sitting there thinking…ok…do you have some other terrible disease? Sexually transmitted maybe (I only say that because that was my reaction to the fact she said she didn’t want to talk about it. If you’ll mention cancer but not another disease…what do you have to hide?) Oh, and let me not forget to mention that Dallas Austin has publicly said that he and Kim are not working together and that he was just working with her for TV on his Myspace blog.
- I love Dwight!!! He is fierce! Note to Bravo: He needs his own show!
- What was up with the hole in Sheree’s sweater? Did a fight breakout before the taping?
- Was it just me or was DeShawn a little less perky now she’s gone through the after-show drama and commenting/gossip (online and otherwise) that has surely taken her through the ringer for her extravagance, her servants, and the failed fundraiser?
- Lisa??? You were the good one, right? What in the world did Kim do to push her buttons. She looked like she was about to take her earrings off and whop Kim’s a**.
Like Flavor Flav’s reality show dating journey, I knew this show was going to be a general train wreck Continue reading

I know this is way off topic, but I have to post this…hilarious!!!
LMAO!! I can’t breathe!
“What were those ingredients again for the moose chili?” That is my favorite line from this video. Oh my goodness! Does this PAC think that this crazy video is going to help Palin? It’s like seeing someone run down the street naked. It’s really interesting for the momment, but after you’re just like, “WTF, was that.” That’s how I feel after watching this. WTF?
The Our Country Deserves Better PAC has begun running spots in Alaska — two 60-second ads, and two 30-second versions — that pay tribute to Palin, with plans to expand the ad buy to the rest of the country sometime this week.
“Governor Palin inspired millions of Americans by fighting for common sense conservative principles in a positive and uplifting manner,” chief strategist Sal Russo said in a statement. “I worked with President Ronald Reagan since his first days in the California Governor’s Office, and I can tell you that I see so many similarities between President Reagan and Governor Palin.”
The 60-second Thanksgiving-themed spot — which comes days after footage of a Palin interview on a turkey farm hit the airwaves — also points to the Alaska governor’s fondness for moose chili as a turkey alternative.
The PAC — which sponsored the “Stop Obama Now” bus tour during the campaign season — said it plans to spend at least $50,000 airing the ads in Alaska. It has not yet released details of the ad buy on national broadcast and cable networks.
LOL LOL! My God this is too funny. I loved this skit. Beyonce was very good and Justin was too funny.
Note: I posted this with a DailyMotion link and it got shut down. Apparently the video is getting taken off of YouTube too…I don’t know why they didn’t post it to the NBC site. We’ll see how long this one stays up.
This woman can not lead this country and is not fit to be VP. Click here for the video from CBS NEWS.
I’m sorry, I just needed to say that. She sounds stupid…actually. I know she’s likely a bright woman, but she should know better than than to let her campaign handlers send her out unprepared. That is just dumb.
“When Giuliani sneered about community organizers on the “South side” of Chicago, it’s pretty clear what he was saying: Barack Obama spent his time rabble-rousing among black people.” – Ezra Klien
Both Giuliani and Palin made the profession of community organizer out to be the butt of a joke. Palin said “I guess a small-town mayor is sort of like a community organizer – except that you have actual responsibilities”.
Without community organizers, African American Women like me (and countless other religious, LGBTQ, racial, etc…various social segments I could name) would have a hard row to tow trying to “pull ourselves up by our boot straps”. Um…Palin would not be able to vote without the work of community organizers. Hello?
Abolitionists organized to bring an end to slavery
Women’s Sufferage organizers worked to give women the vote
Countless Civil Rights leaders were Community organizers like Martin Luther King, Dr. Dorothy Height, and Malcolm X
Community organizers would not be a group I would come after, if I was on the Republican ticket, or any ticket for that matter. These people know how to mobilize people, real people, on a grassroots level. They know how to raise money. They know how to make change happen, even when hope is gone. They are real workers. That’s not a population that I would want mad at me if I was in the underdog position in the presidential race.

Weigh in: Will some drama go down tonight on The O’Reilly Factor when Bill welcomes Barack Obama to the show, or will it be a civil exchange? Will the truce stand or will Bill try to treat Obama like Ludacris?
What do you think?
Whatever happens, I think it may be enough to take the spotlight away from Sarah Palin for a day…or two.
